Ascent Trip Report***Private Outing***
Rather than slogging up Mt McKinley in the rapidly warming heat after our morning ascent of Harrison, we instead drove over to Hwy 18 and drove up to Peak 4120, Cloud Benchmark, and Marshall Peak. Easy drive in on dirt roads with Tanya's moderate clearance Suburu Forester. We hiked up the 0.4 miles to the summit of Peak 4120 to a locked gate at its little spur road; we drove right up on to the summit of the other two peaks, finishing up on Marshall where we paused to watch a group of three hang gliders setting up and got to watch one para-glider take off from the summit.
